And finally Lincoln Logs.  Now that's an old school birthday!

Sasha tests out her new snorkel set in Anya's new pool.

She really got her face in there.

Great job Sasha!

Finally done?  Time to sing and eat!

One night the family went Duckpin Bowling!

In Duckpins you use these small balls about as big as a softball, with no holes.  You get 3 rolls per frame and the pins are short and fat.

It's way way way harder than it looks.  However the kids had bumpers on their lane.

I should have asked for bumpers too!

Look at the final score after the first game!  And I was really really trying!

These lanes were really old fashioned.  
There was a floor pedal to sweep the pins between throws and a manual reset button at the end of your turn.

Everybody had a fun night at the lanes.


And we got free pizza and pop!

We all did slightly better in the second game

Except Sasha who stayed perfectly on average and still crushed us all.
